What can you do with a rental car in Santander? Despite being one of the great unknowns, Santander offers countless charms to visitors. With over 170,000 inhabitants, Santander’s beautiful bay looks over the Cantabrian sea. The landscape around the city is spectacular, since it is a combination of beaches with green spaces, with the areas of Mataleñas, El Sardinero and La Magdalena particularly standing out.
Furthermore, if you travel to the coast north of the city, you can visit a natural area characterised by its precipitous, rocky geography where a large number of birds can be observed.
There are very good reasons why it has been declared a natural park. But Santander also has surrounding areas well worth visiting. For example, just a few kilometres away are Santillana del Mar, the Dunas de Liencres Natural Park or the Cabárceno Natural Park, places you won’t want to miss if you are a nature lover.
It is also highly recommendable to travel the Cantabria by Car Route. An itinerary that will show you the essence of Cantabria through La Virgen del Mar, Liencres, Puente Arce and Peña Cabarga, among other places.
